Within the scope of the Epidemio project satellites will join this field as data sources for epidemics. The scope of this ESA - funded project is to demonstrate and use the potential of Earth Observation for a new application supplying new types of environmental information on epidemiology. Jena-Optronik is the leader of the Epidemio project team. Since the work plan requires combining complementary skills and expertise, a consortium has been organised that is qualified and well experienced in the various relevant fields. Objectives of Epidemio are the test and demonstration of the potential of Earth Observation for a new service for epidemiology. Furthermore analysing arisen epidemic diseases in a geographically limited - but in the past by epidemics affected area, assess the situation in real time in the area of interest, mapping the burden of diseases and new basis for prevention measurements, mapping the impact of control.

GlobWetland II
A regional pilot project of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. GlobWetland II, led by Jena-Optronik, was launched in January 2010. The overarching objective of the GlobWetland II project is to contribute to the setup of a Global Wetlands Observing System (G-WOS) as per the strategy 1.2 of the Ramsar Strategic Plan 2009-2015, Resolution X.1, adopted at the 10th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP-10) of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, in Changwon, South Korea. The GlobWetland II information system includes maps and system software. The GlobWetland II system software is available as an ArcGIS toolbox and consists of a remote sensing and a GIS component for tasks like satellite image pre-processing, Land Use/Land Cover classification, change detection and for the indicator computation.

We provide seamless (no cloud cover gaps), high-resolution (20 m), near real-time (daily updates) snow depth data for alpine regions existing snow depth ground measurements. Check out our ExoSnow app (for free, no adds) for examples in the US Sierra Nevada and Colorado. Our snow depth product combines multi-sensor satellite data with ground measurements while accounting for topographic and meteorological variations. Direct data access to our products is provided via API’s, WMTS, file servers and mobile apps 'ExoSnow'
